Marisa Barros & Astor Silva – Marisa Barroso / Astor (1963)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 27 de abril 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Brazilian female singers have something special. Nelson Motta said one day that Brazil is a country of female singers. I agree.

Our community gives always a nice feedback on Brazilian divas. It is time to remember a Brazilian diva that was introduced to us by Caetano Rodrigues, Thelma Soares or just Thelma. I’m quite sure that only a few Loronixers knew Thelma before presented here.

Caetano is now thrilling us with a new female singer and I think she can make as Thelma.

Meet Marisa Barroso with the legendary Astor Silva from Os Ipanemas.

This is Marisa Barroso & Astor Silva – Marisa Barroso / Astor (1963), for Columbia. Thelma was revealed by Vinicius de Moraes and Beatriz Azevedo de Brito by Ary Barroso, this is the reason for the artistic name. Marisa Barroso recorded several 78rpm and three LPs, such as Thelma that also made three albums. Anyway, I think it is better hear Marisa Barroso & Astor Silva, instead of finding coincidences. Astor is a top-notch musician that we know for several albums at Loronix, performing the roles of trombonist and arranger.

Tracks include:

01 – Chorando Você (Glauco / Fernando Pereira / João Ribeiro)
02 – Ele e Maria (Othon Russo / Niquinho)
03 – Banca de Pobre (Rildo Hora / Marcos André)
04 – Bondinho do Pão de Açúcar (Victor Freire / A. C. de Albuquerque)
05 – Abc do Balanço (Orlandivo / Roberto Nascimento)
06 – Esse Seu Olhar (Tom Jobim) — Só Em Teus Braços (Tom Jobim)
07 – Bossa Nova Nº 1 (José Maria de Abreu)
08 – Ódio (Aloísio Figueiredo / Nelson Figueiredo)
09 – Lamento Negro (Orlandivo / Roberto Jorge)
10 – Garota de Ipanema (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Vou Ficar Com Você (Sergio Napp)
12 – Brincando Gostei (Watel / Orlandivo)

“Uff,yeahh” Caetano makes my day.
Unbelievable! Yesterday I thought about this Barros/Silva Lp of my vinil collection -very worry about knowing about the poor condition of my Lp in hope to find a better one day and this morning I woke up and what see my eyes- Such things are only possible with Caetano-who elese can show better the history of the bossa nova years than Caetano.
Thanks so much.

Best wishes

Vanja Orico – Viagem Musical com Vanja Orico (1955)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 22 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! I want to introduce Loronixers to a new artist, which is a very old recommendation by Refer, made as soon as Loronix has started. By the way, it has been a long time I do not see Refer on comments. I hope he shows up with this album, another nice contribution by Jorge Mello.

Vanja Orico is an extraordinary artist, being also an actress, actually, her career as an actress is stronger than her singing activities. She is really a complex and intriguing woman.
Let’s see.

This is Vanja Orico – Viagem Musical (1955), for Sinter, which is Vanja Orico debut LP, performing a repertoire based on different Brazilian traditional music from several regions, including Samba, Baiao, Xote, Toada, Capoeira and some other styles I never heard about, such as Côco and Rojao.

The result is very satisfactory with Vanja Orico delivering beautiful singing and some interpretation of each style. A Google search on Vanja Orico returns loads and loads of information and I learned today that her first experience as a singer was in 1950 when she was 16 studying at a num college in Europe.

Vanja Orico came out one day for a walking and found a movie set on a busy street in Italy. There was Frederico Fellini that invited Vanja Orico to make a participation on his movie singing Meu Limao, Meu Limoeiro and playing violao.

Thanks Jorge Mello for this first and really nice Vanja Orico album at Loronix.

Tracks include:

01 – Canoeiro do Itapicurú (Reginaldo Nascimento) Côco 02 – Prenda Minha (Tradicional) Xótes
03 – João Valentão (Dorival Caymmi) Samba
04 – Muié Rendeira (Tradicional) Rojão
05 – Peixe Vivo (Tradicional) Baião
06 – Lenda do Abaeté (Dorival Caymmi) Canção
07 – Yayá Vancê Qué Morrê (Tradicional) Toada
08 – Berimbau (João Mello / Clodoaldo Brito) Capoeira

O curioso deste disco é que na capa a palavra “musical” vem com acento agudo no “u”.
Será que os produtores do disco não viram isto?

I love this album! I intended to send a copy of this to Loronix a long time ago but coauldn’t make a decent transfer. I found a copy in a charity shop in Leith in Edinburgh a few years ago – I’m always amazed at how many Brazilian records I find here in Scotland. Vanja’s versions of these songs have led me to investigate many other artists, in particular Dorival Caymmi. I believe that Mule Rendeira was used in the film O Cangaceiro, and was subsequently adopted by many singers around the world. It was also this record which introduced me to the fascinating story of Lampiao.

Tito Madi – Sua Voz… Suas Composições… (1958)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 17 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! It is amazing that even after 2 years Loronix is still capable of revealing never released albums of very important artists. I believe that only a few friends had the chance to hear this album, recorded by Tito Madi in partnership with Maestro Rafael Puglielli in 1958 and never released on CD.

Another awesome Jorge Mello contribution, which I would like to say thanks for keeping us amazed with really nice music and content.
Let’s see.

This is Tito Madi – Sua Voz… Suas Composicoes (1958), for Continental, featuring only Tito Madi compositions and Maestro Rafael Puglielli performs solo with orchestra on tracks 01 and 07 and probably delivers accompaniment to Tito Madi across the whole session. Little I know about this really hard to find album, such as all others recorded by Tito Madi in the late 50′s.

Tracks include:

01 – Rio Triste (Tito Madi) Fui Procurar Distração (Tito Madi) with Rafael Puglielli e Sua Orquestra
02 – Quando a Chuva Não Vem (Tito Madi)
03 – Senhorita (Tito Madi)
04 – Rio Triste (Tito Madi)
05 – Joguete de Amor (Tito Madi / Georges Henry)
06 – Cansei de Ilusões (Tito Madi)
07 – Chove Lá Fora (Tito Madi) Olha-me Diga-me (Tito Madi) with Rafael Puglielli e Sua Orquestra
08 – Fui Procurar Distração (Tito Madi)
09 – Fracassos de Amor (Tito Madi / Milton Silva)
10 – Olha-me Diga-me (Tito Madi)
11 – Canto do Engraxate (Tito Madi)

Year of performance:         Live at the Teatro Santa Rosa, 1966
Guitar Model:                      Author 3 by luthier Reinaldo DiGiorgio
Description:                        Third Elenco record of B.P. and the first live recording.
Style:                                     Afro Sambas, solo pieces, standards


BrazilOnGuitar says: Unfortunately, we did not find out the exact recording date of this first live record by BP. The half-hour recording in the Teatro Santa Rosa is another proof of his guitar abilities in 1966 and stands for his intense playing style. The sound quality of the recording is not the best and could not be improved significantly with the 2003 cd re-issue. However, BP's guitar playing is so precise and exciting that the sound can be overlooked.

The recordings give the impression of a creative and very vital musician, whose life is completely devoted to music. At this time BP had developed great musicality and an impressive technique. It seems that on Teatro Santa Rosa he wanted to set other standards. In his high tempi there could be missed the depth and relaxation of later years, which is understandable thinking of his playing speed.

Elizeth Cardoso – Fim de Noite (1957)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 10 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Finally, Fim de Noite arrives at Loronix. Once again by the tireless Jorge Mello, continuously showing the great passion he has for Brazilian music, knowledge and a sincere sharing spirit by make available to us fantastic picks taken from his personal collection.

Everybody know I was hunting this one to replace my own copy, terrible scratch and impossible to make an acceptable transfer.

Fim de Noite was recorded in 1957, the same year of another Elizeth Cardoso album that is one of my favorites, Noturno.
Let’s see.

This is Elizeth Cardoso – Fim de Noite (1957), for Copacabana. I don’t know which one was first released or recorded, probably Fim de Noite came first as it was released on 10-inch. Both are very similar, but Fim de Noite has a dark atmosphere, sometimes sad and with a strange beauty that is very difficult to resist.

Tracks include:

01 – Na Madrugada (Betinho / Heitor Carrilo)
02 – Último Desejo (Noel Rosa)
03 – Velhas Memórias (Lombardi Filho / Pedro Rogerio)
04 – Prece ao Vento (Gilvan Chaves / Fernando Luis / Alcyr Pires Vermelho)
05 – Amor Oculto (José Saleme / Lucas Vieira)
06 – Feitio de Oração (Vadico / Noel Rosa / Vadico)
07 – O Amor É Fado (Mirabeau / Don Madrid)
08 – No Rancho Fundo (Ary Barroso / Lamartine Babo)

Elizeth Cardoso – Noturno (1957)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 24 de julho 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Extra: Arquivo em FLAC

This is a repost of a breathtaking album, released in the very beginning of Loronix and one of posts that made me feel gladder when I made it.

Elizeth Cardoso – Noturno (1957) is really fantastic, it is the first 12-inch record by Elizeth Cardoso and has something very curious, some tunes were considered old at that time, with their first recording almost 30 years before Noturno release. In summary, we have a 50 years old album with 80-year-old songs.

This is Elizeth Cardoso – Noturno (1957), for Copacabana. Even if you already have the earlier music from the original post, take this one. The music is improved and was taken by one of those last anonymous contributions to Loronix. There are songs of Noel Rosa, Custodio Mesquita, Ary Barroso, Silvio Caldas mixed with fresh compositions of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Tito Madi.

Tracks include:

01 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso)
02 – Risque (Ary Barroso)
03 – Chove Lá Fora (Tito Madi)
04 – Molambo (Jaime Florence “Meira” / Augusto Mesquita)
05 – Feitiço da Vila (Vadico / Noel Rosa)
06 – Noturno Em Tempo de Samba (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)
07 – Se Todos Fossem Iguais a Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
08 – Chão de Estrelas (Silvio Caldas / Orestes Barbosa)
09 – Olhos Verdes (Vicente Paiva)
10 – Promessa (Custódio Mesquita / Evaldo Ruy)

This album is a classic among classics and a doorway to a time–or, should I say, grandeur–lost.
Each song is a production done with consummate taste. Elizete Cardoso is Brazil’s nightengale. Her vibrato is so beautiful that at times it sounds like the trilling of a bird. On “Chove La Fora” she reaches heights of vocal art that I have rarely heard. And “Noturno” is such a tour de force for her considerable talents that I can see why it is the title tune. And, finally, mention must be made of the exquisite introduction to “Se Todos Fessem Iquais a Voce.” With the posting of this extraordinary album, your blog becomes an oasis of beauty and of transcendant art. You will find it hard to top this album. It is a masterpiece.

Obrigado Zecalouro por mais essa jóia do cancioneiro brasileiro. Esse é, talvez, o mais clássico lp da Divina. Não há nada que se compare a interpreção soberta de Elizete em Noturno.
Uma sugestão: tenho sérias dificuldades com o inglês e porisso solicito que, se for possível, faça seus comentário dos discos também em português. Pode ser mesmo em manauense.
Artur Pedreira

zecalouro on Wednesday, 02 August, 2006
Hello David, Hello Artur,
Before Noturno, zecalouro was sure that the only human on earth that could sing as sharp as an instrument was Joao Gilberto. This LP shows that I was wrong.
By this record, the production, repertoire selection and arrangements it is clear that Elizeth has control of everything she does, end to end. I don’t know if you understand Portuguese but this is clearly a conceptual LP where each song links with the next building a theme as result of the overall experience.
Angela Maria is another great singer, perhaps better than Elizeth. In the other hand, Angela does not have any kind of control of overall recording process, resulting in some weird LP as we could see on her last post.
Anyway, since it is a classic, I’m making available a giant size artwork from front and back cover: Front – and Back –

zecalouro on Wednesday, 02 August, 2006

Obrigado por ter apreciado o Noturno, tudo nesse disco saiu direito.
Quanto ao idioma tupiniquim, seria maravilhoso escrever em portugues, mas acho que o ingles permite que muito mais gente consiga acesar e entender as informações de cada post. Apesar de nós aqui do Brasil contarmos com a maior parte dos usuários existem mais 82 países que já visitaram o Loronix, dentre esses, talvez uns 10 tenham o portugues como língua mater.
Mas tem um remédio que se não resolve, ajuda um pouco. O Babelfish, um tradutor on-line, capaz de fazer uma tradução razoável. Experimente esse link: e preencha abaixo de Translate a Web page o endereço do Loronix Logo depois, selecione a opção English to Portuguese e você terá o website traduzido.
Qualquer ajuda, entre em contato:

Zeca, tem um Elizeth que vc ja postou onde que ela se encontra com varios maestros, inclusive o DIGNO MOACIR SANTOS. Dá prá fazer um re-post????

Dlanod on Tuesday, 24 July, 2007
I am a long time admirer of your blog and have been meaning to leave you comments many times. You do such a great job of presenting all this wonderful music. I want to thank you for offering this Elizeth Cardoso album in flac. I prefer the lossless format and would love to see all future posts be in flac. I do understand that the files are larger, but from an archival point of view you only need to rip the vinyl ONCE and then it can be compressed to whatever degree people want.

My only small, tiny complaint is that I wish you would use diacritical marks when you tag the files. I may be overly picky, but it makes reading the track information (in my poor Portuguese) much easier if I don’t have to struggle with whether it was an e (and) or an é (is) on the display. I also wouldn’t have to constantly keep making notes to change nao to não and coracao to coração. It is amazing how many times these words are used in song titles!
I don’t mean to gripe. It would just make what is a great blog into a blog maravilhoso (is blog masculine or feminine?).
Thanks again for a wonderful site. Keep up the great work.

Caro Loronix.

Mais uma obra-prima de uma das duas maiores cantoras que este Brasil já teve (o meu dilema é que entre a Divina e a Pimentinha eu não consigo distingüir a melhor).
Quando entra a voz da Elizete na “Baixa do Sapateiro” é de arrepiar.
PS: Poderemos ter novamente o “Ao Vivo em Tóquio?”

AdHoc on Wednesday, 25 July, 2007
One of greatest albums ever recorded (anywhere, anytime, any kind of music). Thanks so much for the post.
By the way, FLAC encoded files sound so much better than (128 kbs) MP3, that FLAC encoding should be rule, not the exception.

Many thanks for reposting this recording!

I had never heard this before, it is a fantastic recording of songs & voice. I highly recommend it to everyone reading these comments.

zecalouro on Thursday, 26 July, 2007
Dear Friends,

Thanks for all comments at this post. Just want to remember that Noturno was recorded in 1957, 51 years ago and stills an extraordinary album that should be taken in consideration on every serious list of Brazilian top albums ever.
Thanks once again,

Luiz Bonfá – Passeio no Rio (1960)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 09 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good morning! Yesterday I was very tired; life has been really busy down here. And when that happens, the day always ends in the worst possible way, by accident; I slept on the sofa reading the back cover of this beautiful EP sent to us by Jorge Mello. I feel in the obligation of sharing this one in this extraordinary morning post.
Let’s see.

This is Luiz Bonfa – Passeio no Rio (1960), for Odeon, featuring four songs, including the anthological Luiz Bonfa’s Manha de Carnaval, with Luiz Bonfa singing.

I could not check if these songs were recorded exclusively for this 7-inch EP, which is something that I will let you identify, I’m late for work and must leave in a second.

Have a good day and do not miss another Brazilian music night at Loronix today.

Tracks include:

01 – Manha de Carnaval (Luiz Bonfa / Antonio Maria)
02 – Passeio no Rio (Luiz Bonfa)
03 – Samba de Orfeu (Luiz Bonfa / Antonio Maria)
04 – Mosaico (Luiz Bonfa)

Ary Barroso e Dorival Caymmi – Ary Caymmi Dorival Barroso | Um Interpreta o Outro (1958)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 08 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

 It is possible that you think I am creating these facts just to add some drama to my writing, but it is absolutely true when I say this album was among those who could not be recovered in the reconstruction of the links and it is made available again by another contribution sponsored by Jorge Mello.

Thanks Jorge, I was really afraid to announce this weekend this anthological album was missed and now I’m really glad to bring it back to Loronix.
Let’s see.

This is Ary Barroso e Dorival Caymmi – Ary Caymmi Dorival Barroso | Um Interpreta o Outro (1958), for Odeon, featuring Ary Barroso performing Dorival Caymmi repertoire at the piano and Dorival Caymmi playing violao and singing Ary Barroso standards,is a beauty of an album that never had the chance of a CD reissue

Ary Barroso piano is beautiful and Dorival Caymmi singing Ary Barroso music is fascinating. This cover is also amazing showing Ary Barroso at Dorival Caymmi’s universe, completely lost as a fisherman and Dorival Caymmi having a lot of fun of Ary and wearing the colors of Flamengo. I hope you have the same pleasure I had this week spinning this album after a long time.

Tracks include:

01 – Lá Vem a Baiana (Dorival Caymmi) by Ary Barroso
02 – Risque (Ary Barroso) by Dorival Caymmi
03 – Maracangalha (Dorival Caymmi) by Ary Barroso
04 – Por Causa Desta Cabocla (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto) by Dorival Caymmi
05 – João Valentão (Dorival Caymmi) by Ary Barroso
06 – Inquietação (Ary Barroso) by Dorival Caymmi
07 – Na Baixa do Sapateiro (Ary Barroso) by Dorival Caymmi
08 – Marina (Dorival Caymmi) by Ary Barroso
09 – Maria (Ary Barroso / Luis Peixoto) by Dorival Caymmi
10 – Dora (Dorival Caymmi) by Ary Barroso
11 – Tu (Ary Barroso) by Dorival Caymmi
12 – Nem Eu (Dorival Caymmi) by Ary Barroso

Well like I already wrote in another comment. The files here are someone else (Luiz Bonfa and Norma Suel) interpreting someone else  I hope that after you have rested well after your marathon restauration of this wonderful site that I now consider such a wealth of resources that it also restores my faith in mankind to no small degree!
I look very much forward to hearing “Ary Caymmi e Dorival Barroso” and I wish you good success in finding the right files! I am now sure you must be overworked from your .rar .zip etc. marathon!!
You certainly have added to the drama with this one 
With my heartfelt regards

Radamés Gnattali – Concerto Carioca Nr. 1 (1965)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 06 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! Before presenting another special release sponsored by our great collaborator Jorge Mello, I would like to announce that we are very close to finish the work of reconstruction of all Loronix archive, and this is really great. What initially was considered a difficult and exhausting accomplishment became a unique opportunity to review all posts on an amazing, funny and really useful virtual tour of Loronix past.

I confess that I will miss these days and also the new resources created to monitor the work in progress, such like the small screens with links to the last finished weeks. These screens were really useful to motivate people to monitor the work in progress, getting along with albums that they never could have the chance without this event. I think less then a few days are necessary to have everything finished.

Meanwhile, I think it is time to check this beautiful album recorded by Maestro Radames Gnattali in 1965 in commemoration of 400 years of Rio de Janeiro city, featuring a fantastic participation of a very special guest, the legendary Ze Menezes.
Let’s see.

This is Radames Gnattali – Concerto Carioca Nr. 1 (1965), for Continental, featuring the piano and compositions of Radames Gnattali, Ze Menezes guitar and Orquestra Sinfonica Continental, conduced by Henrique Morelenbaum. This is a self-explanatory release, Concerto Carioca Nr. 1 is among the most acknowledged works of Radames Gnattali and the participation of Ze Menezes guitar is really worth checking.

Tracks include:

01 – 1º Movimento – Abertura Marcha-Rancho (Radames Gnattali)
02 – 2º Movimento – Canção (Radames Gnattali)
03 – 3º Movimento Valsa Seresteira (Radames Gnattali)
04 – 4º Movimento “Final” Samba (Radames Gnattali)

No livro “Radamés Gnattali, o eterno experimentador, de Valdinha Barbosa e Anne Marie Devos, este concerto foi composto para as festas do IV Centenário do Rio de Janeiro- homenagem a Laurindo de Almeida.
Ainda de acordo com a mesma fonte, este Concerto foi apresentado pelos solistas e a OSTM no Theatro Municipal em 30 de março de 1965.
Radamés,nosso grande “maestro mais que soberano” conjugava o binômio qualidade e produtividade de maneira exemplar. Sua contribuição a Musica Erudita Brasileira é significativa e por várias vezes escreveu concertos e peças ligeiras para instrumentos tidos como populares, tais como o violão, gaita, acordeom e bandolim.
Cercava-se, para isso, de grandes instrumentistas como Edú da Gaita, Jacob do Bandolim, Chiquinho do Acordeom, Dilermando Reis,Laurindo Almeida, Garoto e José Menezes. Sobre este último, Radamés disse(ver Radamés Gnattali, de Aluisio Didier) que:” Toca tudo o Menezes:Cavaquinho,bandolim, guitarra, violão e é ainda um bom improvisador. Ele é lá do Nordeste e sei de uma história que o Padre Cícero botou a mão na cabeça dele”.

Guitarist on Tuesday, 06 May, 2008
Amazing! It is fantastic to find so much rare guitar repertoire at loronix, among so many fantastic popular records. Only Gnatalli could merge concert and popular music so well. This must be one of the very first electric guitar concertos, yes?

Alexandre Dias on Wednesday, 07 May, 2008
Excelente post, Zeca Louro. Obrigado.
Você por acaso possui o disco “Cantares Brasileiros II – A Valsa”? Seria uma contribuição ótima, pois é um disco que nunca consegui achar. Tenho o Cantares Brasileiros I – A Modinha, que é impressionante (e aliás conta com a participação do Radamés em várias faixas, inclusive tocando cravo, e acompanhando a Nara Leão). Também seria um ótimo adendo. Ambos os discos são promocioniais, e até onde sei, nunca foram comercializados.
Um abraço

Sylvia Telles – Amor de Gente Moça | Musicas de Antonio Carlos Jobim (1959)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 25 de julho 2007.
Comentários originais incluídos.

 I felt the same pleasure when reposting the last Elizeth Cardoso – Noturno (1957), as I had when it was made available for the first time a year ago. I’m also feeling very good on making this one.

Amor de Gente Moca is another fantastic record released more than a year ago that was sleeping on a given day of June 2006. It is time to bring this amazingly out of print album to the spotlight, calling attention to Loronix new and old friends.

Cover artworks are improved and the music was ripped with zecalouro supervision. FLAC files are also available.

Loronixers acclaimed Sylvia Telles in the past and now it is time to celebrate her music again.

This is Sylvia Telles – Amor de Gente Moca | Musicas de Antonio Carlos Jobim (1959), for Odeon. I’m proud to own the Odeon original issue in a very good condition, the reason for this reposting. Sylvia Telles performs with orchestra the Antonio Carlos Jobim repertoire. I do not have knowledge to describe Sylvia Telles singing from a technical perspective, but she has that “thing” that belongs to less than a few gifted singers I have ever heard before. Amor de Gente Moca is directed by Aloysio de Oliveira, arranged by Maestro Gaya and has Orchestra conducted by Maestro Oswaldo Borba.

Tracks include:

01 – Dindi (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
02 – De Você Eu Gosto (Tom Jobim / Aloysio de Oliveira)
03 – Discussão (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)
04 – Sem Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Fotografia (Tom Jobim)
06 – Janelas Abertas (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

Disco maravilhoso!
Escutei varias vezes já.

This album is beautiful. The melodies / relaxed arrangements feel totally uncontrived, really organic.
To use a cheesy cliche, it’s like the songs have exsisted since the beginning of time. Really nice voice. Been a long time since i downloaded this but keep coming back to it. Over all, i know nothing of Sylvia, and anything i know of music of Brazil is mostly thanks to Loronix, but it sounds like a classic album to me.
Many many thanks, as always

A wonderful album, thanks a lot! Sylvia has a voice that is similar to Sweden’s best jazz singer Monica Zetterlund.


Sylvia Telles – Caricia (1957)

Bonus: arquivo em FLAC

Hello, good evening! Jorge Mello was very right providing this important record to our community. It is also a great coincidence that it is among the few albums definitely lost in my work of reactivating the missing links.

Actually, this is perhaps the most important of them all; Carícia is the debut LP of a singer that I learned to admire with Loronix creation, Sylvia Telles.
Let’s see.

This is Sylvia Telles – Caricia (1957), for Odeon, with the participation of a young musician named Antonio Carlos Jobim as arranger and conductor on two tracks, the opening track 01 – Por Causa de Voce and the closing 08 – Foi a Noite.

Maestro Leo Peracchi is also in charge of arrangements and conduction of track 06 – Chove la For a. Odeon did not credit the remaining five tracks. Caricia features Antonio Carlos Jobim songs that became standards in the following years and Sylvia Telles delivers stunning performances. I think that even those who had already the chance to listen to Caricia in the first post should make this update, now featuring high quality front and back cover scans.

Tracks include:

01 – Por Causa de Você (Tom Jobim / Dolores Duran)
02 – Sucedeu Assim (Marino Pinto / Tom Jobim)
03 – Tu e Eu (Altamiro Carrilho / Armando Nunes) with Lúcio Alves Candinho
04 – Se Todos Fôssem Iguais a Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Canção da Volta (Ismael Netto / Antônio Maria)
06 – Chove La Fora (Tito Madi)
07 – Duas Contas (Garoto)
08 – Foi a Noite (Tom Jobim / Newton Mendonça)

Good to have this back.
Thank you. And bless you. I sent to Japan for “Bossa Balanco Balada” and it is, as I suspected it would be, a masterpice. No one sings Jobim with such depth of feeling. And her version of “Midnight Sun” may well be definitive.

Márcio de Souza on Saturday, 18 November, 2006
Puxa, muito obrigado, Zeca! Acabei de ouvir e entrei no Blog só pra agradecer a ti. Tenho me interessado muito pela Sylvia Telles, que já é uma das minhas intérpretes prediletas. Repertório de ouro tem esse álbum, hein? Confesso que fiquei meio assustado com a capa de estilo adocicado, tipo coisa de moça. Mas o conteúdo é fora de série e garantia de muitas audições daqui pra frente.
Grande abraço, tchê!

Maravilha. Agradeço o re-post.

Hideste on Wednesday, 25 April, 2007
Putz, só agora vi q vc fez um repost desta maravilha, Zeca. Da outra vez eu perdi a chance de pegar.


strangefruit on Thursday, 06 September, 2007
Oh, I agree that this is worth a repost!

Olá Zeca. Não conhecia seu trabalho.

Hi Zeca,

This is really an excellent (re)posting, but needs a little correction: – the male voice that sings with Silvinha in track n. 3, although is not credit on the disc label, is from her then husband, violonist Candinho.
This information is available on Ruy Castro’s book “Chega de saudade”, but more than this, it is different from Lucio’s voice.
Thanks and regards,

jorge mello on Monday, 05 May, 2008
O impecável bom gosto e a enorme capacidade interpretativa de Sylvia Telles (essa é a grafia correta) aparecem com grande destaque neste disco histórico.
São quatro músicas de Tom Jobim, cada uma com um parceiro diferente:

Dolores Duran,
Marino Pinto,
Vinicius de Moraes e
Newton Mendonça.
Duas músicas com a presença de seu ex,o violonista e compositor Candinho:”
"Tu e Eu”, samba canção do admirável flautista Altamiro Carrilho e Armando Nunes, música que abria e fechava o programa “Música e Romance” apresentado por eles na Tv Rio (veja “Chega de Saudade” de Ruy Castro), e o samba canção de Garoto, “Duas Contas”, com Candinho(discípulo do autor da música) ao violão.Para completar, o grande sucesso “Chove lá fora”, de Tito Madi e “Canção da Volta”, outro sucesso da dupla Ismael Netto(lider de Os Cariocas) e Antonio Maria. Um repertório soberbo, com o que havia de melhor nos anos 1955/56 e 57.

jorge mello on Monday, 05 May, 2008
Interessante comentar que Aloísio de Oliveira, produtor artístico da Odeon na época assim declarou no folheto que acompanha a coleção de discos “Bossa nova, sua história e sua gente”, quando ouviu a gravação de “Foi a Noite”:
“Eu estava definitivamente diante de uma coisa que não esperava encontrar. Era a bossa nova na sua maior expressão”.
(veja A Canção no tempo, vol 1, de Jairo Severiano e Zuza Homem de Mello, em “Foi a Noite).
Quando ouví esta composição de Tom e Newton Mendonça não percebí nada disso, nenhum vestígio da BN alí. O uqe vcs acham?

edson mendes on Monday, 05 May, 2008
Jorge Mello, você tem toda a razão.
Aloysio declarou inclusive que na dúvida quanto ao gênero musical que publicaria no selo do disco 78 rpm que lançou Foi a noite (prática comum naquela época), preferiu omitir essa informação.
Não se entende o porquê, pois trata-se nitidamente de um samba-canção.

dubmusic on Monday, 12 May, 2008
This was a nice surprise – one of my fave singers on an album I did not know existed.
Many Thanks – muito abrigado, Zeca!

Luiz Bonfá & Norma Suely – A Voz e o Violão (1960)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 0 de maio 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

Hello, good evening! I hope you have the same surprise I had when I got this one from the hands of Jorge Mello. I had this one on my “impossible to find” category, but thanks Jorge, we can now heard and share our thoughts about it.

A Voz e o Violao was recorded in 1960 by Luiz Bonfá and Norma Suely, owner of a very interesting voice that easily goes to popular and classic territory. Everything else I have to say are only assumptions and guesses, but I can guarantee that we are in front of a really worth checking album.
Let’s see.

This is Luiz Bonfa & Norma Suely – A Voz e o Violao (1960), for Odeon, with Luiz Bonfa guitar in all tracks and Norma Suely singing on tracks 03, 06, 07, 09 and 11. Norma Suely discography accomplishes a few 78RPM and two LPs, which includes this once in a lifetime album with Luiz Bonfa and a 1964 Polydor release produced by Joao Mello and arranged by Lindolfo Gaya, definitively worth checking out.

This is only the tip of the tip of an arrow called Jorge Mello’s music. Stay tuned, have a nice Sunday and thanks for your continuous support to Loronix.

Tracks include:

01 – A Voz do Violão (Francisco Alves / Horácio de Campos)
02 – Luar de Agosto (Nilo Queiroz / Baden Powell)
03 – Vagotonia (Lamartine Babo / Reinaldo Dias Leme)
04 – Samba do Orfeu (Luis Bonfá)
05 – Tema de Amor (Luis Bonfá)
06 – Quando a Noite Vem Amor (Luis Bonfá)
07 – Nasci Para Te Adorar (Luis Bonfá)
08 – Noche Azteca (Luis Bonfá)
09 – Rancho de Orfeu (Luis Bonfá / Haroldo Costa)
10 – Manhã de Carnaval (Luis Bonfá / Antônio Maria)
11 – Amor Sem Adeus (Luis Bonfá / Tom Jobim)
12 – Variações (Luis Bonfá)

Lenita Bruno e Orquestra – Musica: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Poesia: Vinicius de Moraes | Por Toda Minha Vida (1959)

Originalmente postado no Loronix em 27 de abril 2008.
Comentários originais incluídos.

 No RF&E já houve uma postagem sobre a música "Por Toda Minha Vida".
Aquela postagen fez parte da "Semana de Antonio Carlos Jobim no RF&E".

It is amazing how maturity makes us take things from a different perspective. That’s the feeling I had when took this album again for a hearing, perhaps after more than a decade interval.

My previous opinion was of a dated album, which got stuck in time through a style of interpretation and arrangements that was out of my preferences.

However, since the day Jose Matos gave it to our community, I take it for a spin every day. Thank you again Jose Matos. Now it is time to show it to Loronixers. Let’s see.

This is Lenita Bruno e Orquestra – Musica: Antonio Carlos Jobim, Poesia: Vinicius de Moraes | Por Toda Minha Vida (1959), for Festa, featuring arrangements by Maestro Leo Peracchi, Lenita Bruno’s husband at that time and not credited at the album due contractual obligations with Odeon. It is really nice to hear very different renditions of well-known Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes music with the beautiful Lenita Bruno lyric singing with the reduced, but perfectly adequate arrangements by Maestro Leo Peracchi. 

Maestro Radames Gnattali plays piano at Canta, Canta Mais, which is the track selected to Loronix Preview Center. I made several attempts to clean the back cover with no success; it brings liner notes by Antonio Carlos Jobim. You will find a version with no image processing inside the music. If someone skilled on Photoshop can make it, I will really appreciate.

Tracks include:

01 – Por Toda Minha Vida (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
02 – Serenata do Adeus (Vinicius de Moraes)
03 – Estrada Branca (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
04 – Soneto da Separação (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
05 – Valsa de Orfeu (Vinicius de Moraes)
06 – Canção de Amor Demais (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
07 – As Praias Desertas (Tom Jobim)
08 – Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
09 – Canta Canta Mais (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
10 – Modinha (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
11 – Cai a Tarde (Tom Jobim)
12 – Sem Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)
13 – Eu Não Existo Sem Você (Tom Jobim / Vinicius de Moraes)

A música "Eu Não Existo Sem Você" é a música N° 3 no Rádio F&E do Martoni no SoundCloud aqui à direito da pagina.>>

Prezado Sr. Zeca: Se eu diz que lhe agradeço enormemente este disco, não posso quantificar quão enorme esse enorme pode ser, pois em todos os aspectos é uma verdadeira beleza. Me alegra muito saber que tem reconsiderado sua opinião e isso é bom, já que a vida está cheia de formosos detalhes, mas só o passo do tempo nos ajuda a reconhecerlos e apreciarlos. Permite que eu lhe peço um pequenho favor: Quando você poda e tenha um pouquitinho de tempo ¿pode reativar o link de Lenita Bruno “Work Of Love”? Faz algum tempo que eu intentei baixar esse disco mas o link está desativado. A você lhe gosta Baden Powell e a mim me gosta Laurindo Almeida. A vida e assim, cheia de contrastes. Isso é o belo que tem e o que la faz bela. Uma vez mais agradecida. Grande abraço

Rodrigo Peracchi on Friday, 02 January, 2009
Olá amigo,
é tempo de comemorar os 50 anos desta verdadeira obra de arte!!!
Obra que trouxe afirmação aos grandes gênios da musica brasileira; interpretado magestosamente pela diva Lenita Bruno( e pensar que Nara Leão é lembrada como a musa da bossa nova…); uma pena que o esquecimento tenha pairado sobre aqueles “a quem não tenho permissão para citar nesta contracapa(…)”
Parabéns pela memória e pelo Blog!
